1011-12OR: 100
33/1

Back on a handy mark for his stable debut. Not seen since being pulled up for Alan King just over a year ago. Revival needed, but worth a market check in a weak race.

811-11OR: 99D
6/1

1lb lower than his last win and, like then, he tried to make all last time when not disgraced beating everything bar the easy winner. One of the more likely winners in this field.

1111-8OR: 96
16/1

Acts on a sound/fast surface, but on a long losing run since October 2017, when he scored for Nicky Henderson. Recent form leaves him with plenty to prove.

811-7OR: 95
25/1

Would be competitive if able to reproduce her Chepstow run from November, but pulled up last twice, so has plenty to prove in a first-time hood and tongue-tie.

Has mainly been campaigned over further. Back in better form at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) last time and looks a contender from the same mark.

1011-2OR: 90D
16/1

Won from 5lb higher in 217, when with Gary Moore. Increasingly inconsistent, and after one run for Barry Brennan he now makes his debut with another trainer. Not easy to make a strong case for him on recent evidence.

1010-13OR: 87D

Won three times in Ireland, where a sound surface suited, but badly out of sorts lately.

1-30 over hurdles. At his best he would have a chance of picking up some prize money, but pulled up last time, so has more than enough to prove.

1110-9OR: 83D
5/1

2-27 over hurdles, but he has run well from similar marks in two of his last three starts, and probably has frame claims again.

610-8OR: 82
25/1

O-4 over hurdles and thrashed on both completed starts. Hard to recommend her on her handicap debut given all that.

510-8OR: 82
14/1

Never better than her five third-placed efforts in 15 hurdles, but two of those have been this season. Inconsistent, but not ruled out of the frame again, if able to bounce back from a poor run.

In-and-out performer. Best efforts would give him a squeak, but certainly carries risks. Have to hope that new headgear has a positive effect.

710-1OR: 75
6/1

20-race maiden under rules and, although her latest effort was a step back in the right direction, she can't be relied upon to back that up.

910-0OR: 71
6/1

Has been thereabouts and running respectably of late. Could again make the frame, but with a record of 0-34, he is a bold bet for win punters.

Betting

Forecast

Flanagans Field (5/1), Iniesta (6/1), Kahdian (6/1), Ruby Russet (6/1), Stonemadforspeed (7/1), Coisa Blanco (7/1), The Lady Rules (14/1), Ice Konig (16/1), Cool Macavity (16/1), Good Man Hughie (16/1), Cold Fusion (25/1), Better News (25/1), Bulfin Island (33/1), L'Attesa (66/1)

Verdict

Very modest fayre, where INIESTA could blaze the trail and this time hold on. Bulfin Island has the ability to get involved at this level, Stonemadforspeed is another potential player, with Flanagans Field and Kahdian each-way players.
  1. Iniesta

  3. Stonemadforspeed
